  • Mission:
  • As a parent-teacher cooperative nursery school, our mission is to:
    • Provide a relaxed and creative learning environment
    • Educate through play, curiosity and discovery
    • Involve parents in the educational process
    • Prepare children for life and school, allowing them to develop at their own pace
    • Continue the development of our mission through co-operative work among our community of families.

  • History:
  • The Community Cooperative Nursery School (CCNS) was founded in 1953 by a group of parents in the Village Creek community of Norwalk, Connecticut. As founding members of Village Creek, the first planned integrated neighborhood in Connecticut (and one of the first in the country), they wanted an early education program which reflected the principles on which they founded their community: a creative environment with professional guidance where they could know all racial, religious and economic groups. For the first few years, the families conducted school in the basements of co-op members. After several years, a residential building was aquired by the parent cooperative and was transformed into the permanent home of CCNS. We remain in the same building today, which has been preserved by five decades of committed families.

    We have a tradition of tight financial management, and we have preserved our founders’ goal of being a low-tuition school with high educational standards to be accessible to families of wide ranging incomes, regardless of race, color or religious creed. Parent involvement, both in the classroom and in the management/maintenance of the school, has been the key mechanism of cost management, and also remains a core principle of our school.
